Benchmark Recovery is proud to announce that on March 3rd, our residents will participate in a city-wide environmental event organized bythe Austin Parks Foundation, “It’s My Park” Day. Residents will be helping withpark reclamation, tree planting and trail improvements.
Becoming environmentally conscious is a quality that foldsin perfectly with our spiritual program of community and becomingothers-focused. Participating in thisevent is just one way our residents can demonstrate our commitment to the larger picture and the world around us. As volunteers, we practice the spiritual principles of gratitude and humility – all in the name of beautifying the city we live in.
Benchmark has begun additional environmental initiatives at home as well, including greater recycling practices in our residential facilities and moving toward paperless communications in our offices. As we reclaim our lives in sobriety, becoming environmentally responsible is just one way we can exhibit our newfound integrity and awareness. As we grow inthis program, doing the right thing just feels good.
